Explanation of the flag

I saw this image on a news report yesterday. After I got the number of stars right (52) I got into doing the image. The Philippines' Presidential Flag is a dark blue 2:3 (I assume; it did not seem as long as the national Philippines flag), with the President's Emblem centered inside it. This emblem consists of a 52 white stars ring, and within it the sun from the flag, together with a red, equilateral triangle, the corners of which bear each a golden star (similar to the arrangement on the flag). Inside the triangle, we see a sea lion, in a different version to that on the Manila flag. I've also seen this flag with a lighter shade of blue, but that was when General Ramos (and not Mr. Estrada) was in power. Perhaps I just can't remember it very well.

Pedersen, (1971), shows the presidential flag in a light blue in the same ratio as the jack, almost 1:1. I can understand a color change, but would the proportions be changed also?

Album des Pavillons shows the presidential flag also with a light blue field, and a proportion of 26:33. There are also minor differences in the emblem: the sealion has no sword, and all of the three stars are pointing upwards.

Album des Pavllons also has a verbose description of the flag of the Vice-President's flag: same pattern as the Presidential flag, but with:
- white field with four blue stars in the four corners
- blue sun, inner stars and sealion white

As the last freed Jolo French hostages were holding a conference with President Estrada last Tuesday, I noticed that the Presidential Standard was on a light blue field and that the sea-lion did not have the sword. So I suppose that many variants exist of that standard.
